Past Work on Site

UST 2541 received multiple petroleum waste streams from the former "POL Fuels Laboratory". It was removed in 1998 with no sampling conducted, and had further investigation in 1999 and 2001. The 2001 investigation documented BTEX, GRO, and DRO well over Method 2 soil cleanup levels, and GRO, DRO, and benzene above groundwater cleanup levels. This tank is managed under the Air Force Compliance program. --Updated 2011-- SS016 has been identified as a candidate for site characterization. The primary objective of data collection at this site it to characterize the nature and extent of POL contamination in soil laterally and vertically. Target analytes at this site are: DRO, GRO, RRO, VOCs, PAHs, EDB, 1.2 DCA, and metals. This site is also part of a large multiple site interim removal action. In June 2011 ADEC sent a contingent approval for the sampling locations proposed in the site characterization field sampling plan. Additional comment resolution is need for full approval. Additionally in June 2011 ADEC approved the Work Plan for the interim removal action at this site. The primary objective of the interim removal action is to remove the soil source area down to 15 ft bgs. Site characterization sampling is expected to be initiated in the 2011 field season. The interim removal action at this site is scheduled to begin in August 2011.
